Rated 3 out of 5 by from DOESN'T FIT SHORT-WAISTED WOMEN This dress does not run large as some have stated. It runs true to size. It also doesn't work for short-waisted women. When I put the dress on, the shoulders kept falling off me. So, unless you're tall, I don't think you will get the right fit. The dress also kept flopping open in the front. I guess that's because I wasn't long enough to keep the shoulders on? The knit is a thick knit and comfortable. The bottom of the dress has a semi-gathered ruffled, which to me distracts from its elegant look and makes it more of a peasant style. I recommend this for someone tall and not too busty. But, for me it did not work and I had to return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from a little to cut out for a 50 year old this dress looked sloppy in person and was cut in too far at the caplet sleeve. It didn't flatter a mature woman.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality This dress has a large ruffle along the skirt that is not evident in the photo. Thin material with an odd drape.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty but not quite what I thought it would be I was looking for a dress just like this for a wedding but the fabric was too casual for the style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Retro Look I wish there were more dresses like this. The beautiful cut reminds me of the classic looks of the forties. It's refreshing to find a subtly sexy piece that comes below mid-thigh! I like the bodice and the flounced hemline. Hourglass friendly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speacial occasion dress I really liked the dress and think it to be high quality, cute and comfortable. I wore the dress to a wedding and had so many compliments on it. I think, however, I will hate the waist taken in a little. I'm large chested and the top of the dress fit great while the bottom was a little big. It's an awesome dress I know I will get lots more use out of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from nothing special I agree with other reviewers who commented on the odd cut under the arms -- it cuts in so if you have any flesh where chest-meets-arm, it will be unattractively on display. this is not visible in the online photo, where the model appears to have the sleeves balanced precariously on the edge of her shoulders (where they wouldn't stay if she moved). otherwise, it's an okay dress, does run a bit large, and the fabric is t-shirt like, but for a casual dress -- at the sale price -- that seems okay.
